Cabinz idea for an Interior Door opaque Panel for aShipping Container Door to Reduce Wind Driven Rain, Yet Let Light Through
This a basic concept , the idea is untested with a prototype, but basic principle is believed to be sound
Two internal hinged doors would be attached to the inside of the shipping container doors .
They would be made of opague grp fibreglass sheets, screwed to beams made of fibreglass skin with a plastic composite beam frame. This frame could be covered in dry wall lining metal for extra strength
A lock / bolt or tie would join the doors together
Previous Cabinz prototypes show these same materials being used (see links at end of this article)
1. Rain & Wind Reduced
Greatly reduces rain and wing damaging container contents, when doors are open
2. Reduces damp
reduces rain getting into containers , in which it is trapped when doors are closed, so making container contents damp
passers by cannot see inside container , when internal door shut
4. Lets Light In
Lets 80% of light through door panel , so users can still see items in unlit container
5. Fire resistant Materials
6. Rot resistant,
not affected by moisture in container or rain outside
7. Theft reduction
Stops passers by stealing goods from containers with open doors
8. Extra Security
Forms an extra door for thieves to break through if they break through main door
9 Lightweight materials
.The doors are lightweight , so if the wind catches them they will not cause seroisuly injury by swing back on a person.
10 Visibility through door improves Health & safety
. A person can be seen through the opaque panel if close behind it, so they will be seen & not have the door opened on them, as this is a risk if the door wa not opaque
11. Low cost
As Cabinz gets these materials donated or purchase them at clearance
stock prices, they are much cheaper than other materials
12. Strong Materials
grp is very strong & flexible , so with goods being moved in &
out , potentially touching them , they will be resistant to knocks . If
they are damaged, they can be replaced cheaply
